“The Skeptics” are “debatable”

In the aftermath of the Google+ Hangout …

I remember seeing one of “The Skeptics™” continuing to twit at a pro-Burzynski Twitter user, after they were asked to stop

If I find it I’ll post it here



Guy, what’s your point ?

That I’m giving “The Skeptics™” some of their own “medicine” and they don’t like it ?

@SceptiGuy, Is it true that a “Skeptic™” sucker is born every minute ?

Because if you believe Wikipedia’s lies, “Orac” has something for sale

I’m waiting for someone to “prove it”

Guy, you have absolutely NO credibility:

2 – Terminated (Withdrawn due to slow enrollment)

7 – Withdrawn (Study withdrawn prior to enrollment)

The above 9 studies were NOT even started, which means that there would NOT be any “results” to publish

Now research the 52

Guy Chapman, you are the epitome of “massive cognitive dissonance”

After all, you thought I was “Astroturfwatch” based on absolutely nothing


Awwwwwww … and if she posts garbage as she has also done in the past, I will call her out on it

Except I never said that, and you can’t prove I said that

Maybe I should misquote you ?

David, this is the first question for Bob:

3/4/2013 – 7:58pm – You posted on Colorado Public Television (CPT12):

“ANP is toxic as anything!”

So you’re saying what ?

ANP is as toxic as water ?

David, do you understand that question, or is it too difficult for you ?

David James, try this:


@StortSkeptic, I’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for “The Skeptics™” to leave comments on my blog without having to authenticate/sign in

Why don’t you grow some “grapefruits” and ask away ?

Why can’t you think the way you twit ?

David, where’s your citation(s), reference(s), and / or link(s) that support your position as to when you think Burzynski was required to publish ?

Trust me

I thoroughly enjoyed the rest while Bob yapped away about things he’s blogged about already, and I’ve already blogged about

Yeah … waiting for those citations, references, and / or links

Actions speak louder than words 🙂
Bobby Blaskiewicz Bows Up ‘Bout Burzynski:

Critiquing: The Institute of Medicine report on cancer care: Is the system “in crisis”?

[1] – 9/19/2013 – “Americans love to fight, traditionally”

“All real Americans love the sting and clash of battle…When you, here, everyone of you, were kids, you all admired the champion marble player, the fastest runner, the toughest boxer, the big league ball players, and the All-American football players”

“Americans love a winner”

“Americans will not tolerate a loser”

– General George S. Patton, Jr., June.5, 1944

The above might as well be Greek to Dr. David H. Gorski a/k/a “Orac”

He’s the epitome of the word “loser”

Indeed, “Orac” described his work-place nemesis as “user hostile”

After 5 years, he still didn’t fully understand much of it, and he claims he’s not exactly computer illiterate

Gorski is that “guy” who couldn’t even find Burzynski’s publication:

[2] – 1997 – Burzynski. S.R. Antineoplastons. oncogenes and cancer

[3] – “Orac” batted the big “O” when he tried to find “the scientific rationale to expect that” antineoplastons “might have antitumor activity”

[4] – Gorski was geniusless when it came to finding “which genes are targeted by antineoplastons,“ proving that he really does NOT know Burzynski’s personalized gene-targeted therapy

In fairness, I will point out that he hasn’t put the time in to learn all the ins and outs of the system …

He pontidefecates about phase II clinical trials when his name isn’t even on a phase 2 trial, too

[5] – 9/19/2013 – He’s the “guy” who’s “mystified” as to how Stanislaw Burzynski “has managed to keep practicing for 36 years after he first began treating patients with an unapproved (not ordinary) chemotherapeutic drug (the concoction of peptides purportedly isolated from blood and urine that Burzynski dubbed “antineoplastons” because of their alleged ability to inhibit the growth of cancer)”

This is not an issue unique to Gorski; I’ve discussed other cases like this, such as Bobby Blaskiewicz, who used his man-crush relationship with Gorski to appear on the Skeptic Canary Show; Davey James, who was only recently stripped of his license to practice in several states of mind; Adam Jacobs, who went so far as to use his business influence to alter his Dianthus Mediclueless web-site in London to be more hack friendly, and an interventist who administered twerkpidity to posers who didn’t have common sense and defrauded minions for tens of millions of minutia

It’s a general problem

However, as far as doctors who should have been shut down a long time ago, “Orac” takes the cake

[6] – He has NOT yet figured out that Burzynski learned from the best

[7] – Who could do it better than someone like Dr. Michael A. Friedman, Associate Director, Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program (CTEP), Division of Cancer Treatment (DCT), National Cancer Institute (NCI), Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), Public Health Service, National Institutes of Health (NIH) who Burzynski had to deal with:

“This is, as you point out, a most serious matter, and I was hoping that you could allay my concerns by showing me where they are unfounded

“However, your letter conspicuously fails to address them

“You also make reference to “numerous factual misstatements” but fail to identify any of them, much less provide documentation to show they are false”

Pg. 2

“I am glad that you plan to “thoroughly examine the accusations” I have made”

“I also eagerly await a substantiative response to the points raised in my letter of 4/20/1995”


After all, can we really take a person seriously, who claimed:
[8] – 11/2/2012 – “Personally, having pored over Burzynski’s publications … “
[9] – 5/8/2013 – “I’ve searched Burzynski’s publications … “
[10] – 6/5/2013 – “ … I do know cancer science”
Uhhhhhhh … yeah

But do you really know Burzynski’s cancer science when you did NOT even know:

“which genes are targeted by antineoplastons“?

Has “GOraCON” (“Orac” + @Gorskon) even read these ?

We have conducted a total human gene array screen using the Affymetrix Human Genome plus 2.0 oligonucleotide arrays, for genes regulated by PG and a combination of PG and PN

gene TXNIP was up-regulated almost 5-fold with PG, and almost 120-fold using a combination of PG and PN

genes that are significantly up-regulated are CLDND1, ATF3, CASP5, TP53, TRIB3, and UNC5B

Cancer care: Is the system “in crisis” ?

The Institute of Medicine, just in case you’re like “Orac” and have NOT yet figured it out, “the system” has been “in crisis” since the Gubment “forgot” who they are here to serve

[18] – Gorsi, maybe you can explain to The Institute of Medicine why the Cancer care system is “in crisis” because M.D.’s with Ph.D’s who hold positions “at an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center,”are responsible for massive fact-checking #FAILS
